This is due to your low processor and low configured RAM. Buy new processor and RAM and again play your game. Good luck.

Although Simcity is an old game supported by win95 and the like, you can still run it on the newer OSes like XP as well. To do that just right-click the " .exe" file and select properties click compatibility, and select compatibility mode to "Win95" and click OK. You can also disable visual themes or choose to run in 256 colour mode if required. If nothing works try reinstalling the game.

All the info i can find Maxis SimCity 200 states system requires Windows 95. If you REALY want to play the game, try making your system a dual OS machine with your existing XP and Win95

I can't not play cossacks 2 napoleonic wars in windows 7 you have any solution?


The Game doesn't play because of totally different work environments than it has been designed to. Here are some solutions:
1. Rename Video folder in the game.
2. Right click on the program. Then navigate to compatibility, then select the compatibility operating system the game is supposed to be played under. Also, after you select xp sp2 and check the box that says "run as administrator".
3. Download this patch from:

Game will not open up


Zoo Tycoon has several problems with windows XP after SP2

Uninstall completely...

Reinstall... RESTART AFTER INSTALLING

If your DISC does not have a UBISOFT logo on it, download and install the patch from 

http://zootycoon.com/Downloads/patches.htm

If it DOES you do not need to download it as you already have it and installed it when you installed the game.

If the game does not run try rightclick>properties. Compatability tab, set compatability mode for: Windows 98.

My own copy of zoo tycoon had a weird glitch where you could only run it after you restarted the computer... and if you closed it when you were done playing you would have to restart it (the computer) to play again.

Cant play game


This game is suffering from technical bugs lots of them. You must look for the patches.
the real prob looks to be inside the game engine and only developer may be fully aware of it.

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working


a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.

Can't install and play game simcity 4


It is simple... You will have to go in the Program Files folder, and find the SimCity 4 folder, and then look for the file that you start the game with. This can easily be found by right clicking on the icon that the game created in your start menu or desktop. Click properties and then click Find Target. Now, when you have the file, right click on the file and click properties. Then click on the Compatability tab and click Run this program in compatibility mode for: and choose what you want. Click apply and ok. Then try it...
